The Monkey House Dawlish Review

Today we have been to the Monkey House soft play cafe in Dawlish. I had heard about this place a while ago but today was the first opportunity that we have had to go for ourselves. 

I was really impressed with this place! 

'The Monkey House is a children's indoor soft play centre where parents (and or Carers) can relax, while the children monkey around and play happily on our two tier play equipment, in the safe and secure environment which the Monkey House has to offer'.

It costs £3 per child for unlimited play. Adults and children under 12 months are free. They are open Monday to Saturday 9.30am - 5.30pm. They are closed on Sundays but the place is available for private parties.

 I don't think they have their own car park (as far as we could see) so we parked right outside the front for £2 for 2 hours.

On this visit we didn't eat but I had a look at the menu and the prices seem very reasonable. We had a cup of tea and coffee which cost £1.35 each.
The cafe sells a good selection of food such as pizza, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, pasta, fish fingers etc.

They have all the usual facilities like baby changing, milk/food warming equipment, high chairs, toddler toilet seats and potties.

 We go to quite a few of the soft play/cafe places around the area but this is definitely my favourite so far. The kids really enjoyed themselves and I'm looking forward to going back another day. Maybe on a Wednesday when they have their Coffee Morning between 10am - 12pm if you pay your £3 entry (per child) you the get a complimentary hot drink for the adult & juice and biscuits for the kids. Sounds good to me.
